Event description
A virtual 9-week arts business cohort program that teaches the business side of creative work.

About this event

PEDAGOGY

Learn the business side of creative work through interactive seminars and deep-dive labs centered around the Center for Cultural Innovation publication: Business of Art: An Artist's Guide to Profitable Self-Employment (3rd Edition). You will work in cohort sessions and small group coaching circles to develop your own Business Model Canvas. All of these approaches will help you to develop various aspects of business modeling for an arts practice, project, or venture.

This is a live-virtual program so you can attend if you are anywhere with a computer and wifi.

ENDORSEMENTS

    “The Accelerator program was rigorous yet fun. It helped me redirect my creative spirit towards entrepreneurship. Not only was I able to be in the company of a cohort of talented artists—from curators, to dancers, to musicians—but all of the facilitators presented highly informative and engaging content. I’ve kept in touch with my cohort and have even collaborated on two shows.” - Maddy Clifford, MADlines

    “The Accelerator gave me the courage I needed to embrace business knowledge as a vehicle that can elevate, strengthen and push my practice to the next level. I learned alongside other visionary and incredibly talented artists, many of whom I remain in contact with. Intersection offers a support setting that understands and focuses on artist’s needs.” - Astrid Kaemmerling, The Walk Discourse
